Sewing and Picnics

We've had such fun today sewing! The kids have enjoyed this neat little project. First, I was inspired by Amanda Soule on her blog to have the kids make a drawing, preferably nature, and then trace onto fabric. They chose birds, after skimming through our favorite magazine, Nature Friend. O.K. then they stitched over the tracing. We added a border and it is amazingly beautiful!! Here are some pictures of the magazines and books we were searching through, along with a few of the kids working on their stitching.
Tomorrow I will post the pictures, we have a few last minute stitches to go!






Yesterday our Homeschool group met at the park for a picnic. The kids had a wonderful time playing kickball, tennis, shooting water guns, and some of them were brave enough to examine and disect this creature from the creek. Yikes!!!!
